Put all of the Faction tokens in the cloth bag and shuffle them. Then draw from the bag a number of Faction tokens equal to the number of players.

Quoted from Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bag
A bag (also known regionally as a sack) is a common tool in the form of a non-rigid container. The use of bags predates recorded history, with the earliest bags being no more than lengths of animal skin or woven plant fibers, folded up at the edges and secured in that shape with strings of the same material.[1] Despite their simplicity, bags have been fundamental for the development of human civilization, as they allow people to easily collect loose materials such as berries or food grains, and to transport more items than could readily by carried in the hands.

I think the question was, "What is the use of the cloth bag?" Not, "What is a bag?"

When I got Terry Mystica in the first place, I made such a bag for my game myself. I just got a couple of meeples in all the colors and had a black bag to draw from.
This was meant for the same purpose, but I did not use it once!

So I was really surprised to see this in the expansion.
Did anybody ever use this?

I am certain I will use it in the games I play with the Factions for auction option. But I expect to need quite a few more games before I am experienced enough to want to do so. (And all other players need to also be experienced TM players, of course.)

Funny, that is a typo I have also caught myself making surprisingly often when typing "Terra Mystica". Do you touch-type with 10 fingers as well? I think it has to do with the German keyboard layout (with the y under the a) and the fact that the y coming up 2 letters later is already present in my mind...

By the way, Jörg, Terra Mystica is really popular at Spielkultur these days, there have often been 2 or even 3 simultaneous tables! You would love it - and so do I!

does anybody use it to draw bonus and score tiles?

i had always wanted to use the blue crown royal bag for that, but was always too drunk and thus forget to bring it with me when I'd drive to my friend's place





*that's drunk with excitement for playing TM!

Yep, it totally works for all the blind draws during game setup.
